My sister has tried to send a large file email through outlook which has an attachment of photos. The email has been trying to send for almost a week now but it has not sent yet - due to the size & quantity of photos!
I have tried to delete the email from the outbox but it says i cant. I read another post which says to move the email to the drafts folder when your offline & then u can delete it but this also did not work. It came up as saying "The selected message could not be moved. An error has occurred."
Could someone please help ASAP?
I have not received any emails for a week now & am getting desperate!

If you disconnect the pc from the internet (take the cable out rather than choosing 'work offline') & try send/receive then you should get the usual error massage after a few moments. Try again and delete the message from the outbox. If still not working then I think you have to create a new Outlook profile & delete the old one - outbox included - not as hard as it sounds but it varies with different versions of Outlook.
